Pakistan accused of supporting the group for 20 years


US Secretary of State Antony Blinken called Monday on Pakistan to deny legitimacy to the Taliban unless they meet international demands, acknowledging concerns that Islamabad has supported militants from Afghanistan. Pakistani intelligence had close ties with the Taliban dating from the Islamist guerrillas' rise in the 1990s and Pakistan was one of only three countries to recognize its 1996-2001 government, which was notorious for its repression of women's rights as part of an ultra-austere interpretation of Islam. FRANCE 24's International Affairs Editor Philip Turle tells us more.

  • Scientists Develop 'Tearless' Onions after 20 Years of Research

    If you've ever cooked before, chances are you've cut onions and chances are that you've felt the burn in your eyes that causes you to cry a little. Well guess what, that problem may have just been erased. After 2 decades of research, scientists working for the Japanese food company House Foods Group Inc. have developed a biochemical process to grow onions which do not cause the cook to tear up when cut. Known as the 'Smile Ball,' the onions are produced with an extremely low amount of enzymes which cause the 'tearing up' reaction. House Foods' researchers won the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 2013 for the development of their Smile Ball onion. They are about to cash in on their twenty years to research too - House Foods Group will see its Smile Ball onions, which will cost twice the price of traditional onions, hit stores across Japan this autumn. No more crying at the kitchen table, imagine that.

  • ŠKODA SUPERB - 20 years of luxury ride

    The ŠKODA SUPERB, the top model of the Mladá Boleslav-based car manufacturer, is celebrating its 20th anniversary: on 11 September 2001, the 4.80-metre notchback saloon with its spacious interior, powerful yet economical engines and numerous safety and comfort features made its debut at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt am Main. ŠKODA offers the current, third model generation as a hatchback or estate, optionally available also with all-wheel drive and as the SUPERB iV with plug-in hybrid drive.ŠKODA has a long tradition of producing mid-size and premium models. As early as 1907, twelve years after the founding of Laurin & Klement in Mladá Boleslav, the fledgling company launched the Type FF, a vehicle that offered true luxury. The eight-cylinder in-line engine was designed in-house, as were subsequent models with engines that were as powerful as they were smooth-running. These were also equipped with the innovative Knight slide control system among other features. Between 1925 and 1936, the ŠKODA Hispano-Suiza limousine was used by the then President of the Republic, Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk, along with numerous other prominent figures at the time. In the early 1930s, the car manufacturer from Mladá Boleslav offered a wide range of models with six-cylinder (ŠKODA 633, 645 and 650) or eight-cylinder engines (ŠKODA 860).
